- Wine of California, U.S.A.
A bold wine with big personality, this Sauvignon Blanc has exceptional flavors of lively pink grapefruit, backed by notes of fresh tropical fruit and bright citrus with a crisp, vibrant finish.
Dark House winemaker, Beth Liston, believes that fortune favors the bold. Her pioneering approach to viticulture and winemaking champions quality, originality and above all, taste.
In the cellar, we used gentle techniques to preserve the bright acidity and delicate fruit flavours of the grape. Grapes are harvested at optimum ripeness during the cooler evening temperatures to preserve the perfect balance between acidity and fruit freshness. Fermentation occurred at low to moderate temperatures and carefully selected yeasts enhance the aromatics and expressive mouthfeel. All of the lots were aged in stainless steel tanks until bottling to preserve their brightness and balance
At Dark Horse Wine, we wholeheartedly believe that fortune favours the bold. Winemaker Beth Liston marshals the best agricultural and winemaking resources from around the globe to deliver the unexpected: a bold wine that outperforms its price
The grapes for this wine were selected from premier California vineyards by our Winemaker Beth Liston. The 2016 growing season saw its first wet winter in four years, but rainfall was still only slightly above normal rates. A relatively warm spring and hot summer contributed to an early bud break and quick growth on the vines. The early harvest produced grapes that are full of bright acidity and expressive fruit characteristics for this delicious Sauvignon Blanc
This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 2 years
